  • Is being gay a sin? Is a person born gay? Guest, Michael Gasparro, Associate MFT shares his healing journey from same sex erotic arousal/attraction. Early feelings of same sex attraction were compounded by being exposed to pornography in middle school. A profound experience in Eucharistic Adoration compelled Michael to bring his struggle to the sacrament of reconciliation and ultimately to discussion with his family to live according to his faith.
